2009 in Review

December 27, 2009

Everyone always does end of the year lists on their blogs. I love lists! So here’s one for 2009.

Some family/personal memories and highlights from the past year:

My practically non-existent Jury Duty at the Henderson County Courthouse in January.

Working with other church members to build a worship team for our early service. We started from scratch and I’m so proud of how far the group has come in just a year!

The Ice Storm and no electricity or heat at our house for 2 weeks at the end of January and beginning of February.

Monday night bike rides with Breck’s Bicycle Shop (until they started doing crazy things like biking 20 miles at a time).

Finishing the Youth Room Mural.

Spending lots of time with Whitney and Vallerie!

Hearing all of the awesome stories from Jenny‘s hip replacement and recovery.

Our high school summer mission trip to Mission, SD and the Rosebud Reservation.

Biking Tunnel Hill with Jason, Jonas, Whitney, Vallerie, Jeff and Chris.

Listing with Kathy Jackson at Remax and finally selling our house and moving in with Mom.

Celebrating a 7th anniversary with the most wonderful man in the world.

A new school year of new and fun work at the church.

Attending the National YouthWorker’s Convention in Cincinatti.

Jonas’ miraculous recovery from being shot in the eye with a BB gun.

The Fee Concert.

Jonas receiving his Arrow of Light and crossing from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.

An awesome Christmas with loved ones.

And I know that there are a lot of things that happened this year that I did not mention!

I’m grateful for this year. It was not always easy, but I’m so glad for new friendships, new experiences, new lessons, a new understanding about my call in ministry and all of the great things that did happen.

I’m ready for 2010!
